Safeway Lab Cards Fundraising Program

The Lab Cards Program is a great way to help pay for Outdoor Lab student fees and support the Outdoor Lab program!

Safeway offers reloadable gift cards you can purchase from the Foundation to use when you grocery shop or gas up. Each time you load the gift card with funds, Safeway donates 5% of the amount you load on your card to the Foundation.

We hold the funds in various accounts depending on the type of card you order:

  • Student Fee Card: 
    • Help your school pay for a specific student’s Outdoor Lab fee. The Foundation holds 4.5% from these card loads until requested by your school to pay for the student’s fee. Any amount raised above the fee or after the school’s fundraising cut-off date is used by the Foundation to support the Outdoor Lab program as a whole (and you become part of our Community Givers Club). Cards are not transferable between students. Student fees are set by the school district and fundraising cut-off dates are chosen by the individual schools. Students in kindergarten through 6th grade are eligible to participate.
  • School Scholarship Card: 
    • Help schools pay their Outdoor Lab bill each year. The Foundation will hold 4.5% from your card loads until the end of each school year and pay out the total donation accrued from the card to the school. You can continue to use this card year after year.
  • General Fund Card: 
    • Help the Outdoor Lab program survive and thrive for years to come! The 5% donation on this card is credited towards our general fund to help Jeffco’s Outdoor Lab program as a whole and you become part of our Community Givers Club!
